Wanted: Owner of Three Jets

Wanted: owner of three Boeing 747-200F jets with Icelandic registration numbers parked at Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Malaysia, for more than a year.

Some people forget their old bikes on other people’s property; others might abandon an old car; but three jets sounds excessive.

“If you fail to collect the aircraft within 14 days of the date of this notice, we reserve the right to sell or otherwise dispose of the aircraft,” states a newspaper notice from the airport, dated December 7, alltumflug.is reports.

“The giving of such notice by way of advertisement is a common and reasonable step in the process of debt recovery especially in cases where the company concerned has ceased operations and is a foreign entity whereby exhaustive steps undertaken to find a contact person have not been successful,” Malysia Airports note on their website.

The jets’ Icelandic registration numbers are TF-ARN, TF-ARM, and TF-ARH. Alltumflug.is reports that all three jets used to be owned by Air Atlanta Icelandic, which no longer owns them, but one of the aircraft, TF-ARN, has been parked at the airport at least since 2009. It was last used by MASkargo, Malaysia Airlines’ cargo section. The other two have been there for a shorter time. TF-ARM used to fly for Saudi Airlines Cargo.

RÚV was told by Air Atlanta that the company sold the aircraft seven years ago.

Proceeds from the sale of the jets will be used to cover the cost of storing them.
